    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:7

    Pero a cada uno de nosotros es dada la gracia conforme a la medida del don del Cristo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 4:7

    Verse 7. Unto every one of us is given
    grace] Grace may here signify a particular office; as if the apostle had said: Though we are all equal in the respects already mentioned, yet we have all different offices and situations to fill up in the Church and in the world; and we receive a free gift from Christ, according to the nature of the office, that we may be able to discharge it according to his own mind. So the free gift, which we receive from Christ, is according to the office or function which he has given us to fulfill; and the office is according to that free gift, each suited to the other.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. But unto everyone of us is given
    grace , &c.] Which may refer to the saints in common, and may be interpreted of justifying, pardoning, adopting, sanctifying, and persevering grace, bestowed upon them all, freely and liberally, not grudgingly, nor niggardly, and without motive and condition in them; or to the ministers of the Gospel, and so design gifts fitting for the ministry, which every one has, though differing one from another, and all of free grace: according to the measure of the gift of Christ : either according to the gift of grace to Christ before the world began, and the measure of it, which he communicates to them in time, even grace for grace; or according to that measure of gifts which Christ received from men at his ascension: it may be observed that every member of Christ, and minister of his, receive more or less grace and gifts from him; and that what they receive is all of free grace, and in measure; and though they may have gifts differing one from another, yet all are useful; so that there is no room for pride, envy, and contempt, which would break in upon the unity of the Spirit; for what is said from ( Ephesians 4:3) contains so many arguments to stir up the saints to endeavour to preserve that.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-16 - Unto every
    believer is given some gift of grace, for their mutual help All is given as seems best to Christ to bestow upon every one. He received for them, that he might give to them, a large measure of gift and graces; particularly the gift of the Holy Ghost. Not a mere hea knowledge, or bare acknowledging Christ to be the Son of God, but suc as brings trust and obedience. There is a fulness in Christ, and measure of that fulness given in the counsel of God to every believer but we never come to the perfect measure till we come to heaven. God' children are growing, as long as they are in this world; and the Christian's growth tends to the glory of Christ. The more a man find himself drawn out to improve in his station, and according to his measure, all that he has received, to the spiritual good of others, he may the more certainly believe that he has the grace of sincere love and charity rooted in his heart. (Eph 4:17-24)

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. Every one (eni ekastw). Rev., each. From the
    Church as a whole, he passes to its individual members. In the general unity the individual is not overlooked, and unity is consistent with variety of gifts and offices. Grace (h cariv). The article, omitted by A.V., is important: the one grace of God, manifesting itself in the different gifts.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:7 {According to the measure of the
    gifts of Christ} (kata to metron tes dwreas tou cristou). Each gets the gift that Christ has to bestow for his special case. See #1Co 12:4ff.; Ro 12:4-6.
